He left the New York Rangers to play in the KHL.
Now return Mats Zuccarello, 25, to the club and become teammate with, among others, Henrik Lundqvist, Anton Strålman and Carl Hagelin.
- We have received a contract proposal from the Rangers and just waiting for everything to go off without a hitch, says Zuccarellos Swedish agent Erik Ryman.
Mats Zuccarello left Modo and top division in 2010 after a successful season, where he won the league points (64 points in 55 matches). The spelskicklige Norwegian signed for the New York Rangers, but the time in Manhattan was part of a disappointment. Zuccarello sent between the Rangers and the minor league AHL.
Before this season, he chose to leave North America and wrote instead of a two-year contract with the KHL club Metallurg Magnitogorsk, where he scored 28 points in 44 games in the regular season. The contract was, however, a clause for NHL games and it is the one that Zuccarello now chooses to use.
"Waiting for it to go off without a hitch"
Rangers still have rights to Mats Zuccarello and now want the club to have him back:
- We have received a contract proposal from the Rangers and waiting for everything to go off without a hitch. Metallurg must sign and approve the transfer, said Erik Ryman.
The star-studded Rangers teammate he is, among others, Rick Nash, Brad Richards and Swedish trio Lundqvist, Strålman and Hagelin.
To Zuccarello now returning to the NHL also means that he will most likely not be available for World Cup games. This means that the Tre Kronor not need to meet the Norwegian Star in the group stage of the World Cup on May 8
